Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

ebay seller lists 32GB Kingston DT 150 in private ebay auction

with one comment


Seller tiandicangsang201088 is using private auctions to sell 32GB & 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives. We are convinced these are counterfeit and fake capacity. We think this is yet another ID being used by a fraud gang in China. Buyers can check the serial number with Kingston – all genuine DT 150 drives have individual serial numbers which can be verified.

This seller and ruyuyi20080808 are one and the same. Both IDS have been used to sell other fraudulent items too and ebay has removed many of their listings and suspended the ruyuyi20080808 ID.

If you bought any flash memory item from these sellers test them immediately with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

  1. I have decided to call this lot the wedding dress gang.

    The common factor with these ID’s seems to be the sales of wedding dresses, fine 925 sterling jewellery and fake capacity and counterfeit usb flash drives.

    I mean, what more could a girl ask for on her special day. The dress, the jewellery and a few fake flash drives to accessorize with.

    I would think it wiser to shop elsewhere for all these items if the usb flash drives are anything to go by.
